so what would you recommend:-

i. Polish and Wax for the silver car and.
ii. Sealant for black metallic car.

i. Autoglm Srp and Finish Kare 1000p
ii. Not sure I know of any all-in-one sealants. Most need preparation of some sort. To be honest I would say "see i."

I've used AG HD wax on both very dark and light car and white car and very pleased with the results.

Earlier this year, got some Auto Allure Reflex wax and it's worked very well on wife's dark colour and my silver car and gives a lovely gloss / shine, as does their tough seal sealant...

BH Double speed wax gets very good reviews and looks to give great results...

ODK Echo for the silver cars wax followed by a quick spray of ODK Exhibit, and Adams paint sealant On the black with a top coat of ODK Glamour just as a finishing touch.

Both Bilt Hamber Finis-Wax and Double Speed-Wax are very good, bonus is they are not expensive.
Collinite 845 Insulator Wax is good to.

Cheers
David

Auto Glanz Synthseal continues to be woefully under-appreciated on this forum Would be my pick for your black car if you're after a sealant. It's inexpensive, easy to use, lasts well and to my eyes at least, doesn't go for the totally "glassy" sealant look.

If that's actually what you're after, then FK1000P or Britemax Extreme Elements v2 would be well worth a look.

When I researched this the opinion was that a sealant is better on silver/white as many waxes have a tint to them which can show up on the light paint. Obviously depends on the wax but I never had an issue with any that I tried. Best approach for silver is to use layers to help add to the depth usually lacking compared to darker colours, best result I ever got on my silver Volvo (after machining) was a coat of Poorboys White Diamond glaze followed by two coats of Collinite 845 (tough as old boots yet incredibly glossy, pongs a bit and has to be warmed up to use but goes on and off very easy). After that I used to follow every maintenance wash with a coat of Sonax BSD to keep the protection up and it didn’t do the gloss any harm either. It did also get the odd coat of OCD Nebula, which is just incredible stuff for that special occasion or if you want the ultimate shine and don’t mind waxing every couple of weeks.
